Flew along the under road bridge and towards the weir as reported previously, bang on time. Stopped to do a bit of preening and even bobbing on a stone in front of, and to the left of, the weir for a good 10 minutes, then put itself to bed. Not much light for a photo, but managed to get some recognisable shots.
